But with one very strong suggestion. In fact, let's say a conditional +1 :)

I think on the "front page" of your review materials you should mention the same thing you did in this note: "Note this release changes the major field of version number since there were some deprecated APIs removed (see N&N for details)" Or something like that. I'd say probably as a paragraph in your initial "description".

Thank You, added.

= = = = =

More minor, I think it's always nice to say something on front page about "72 bugs fixed" or similar -- this is the place to brag a little. :)

We have this in N&N. I’ve added it to main description also.

Also minor, I think "communities" usually should mention the "3 pillars" -- 1. committers and contributors as you do (though, to stay vendor neutral, I would not mention "Zend Technologies" -- but, minor comment). 2. adopters (as I think you do) but also 3. user community (usually reflected in "forum activity, bugs opened by users" or other similar things.

I mostly copy/paste this part between releases. 

It’s hard to say about our community for now. We lost huge part of them in past in favour to netbeans and later to *storm (me also) :/ Most of them are now organized around adopters plugin hosted on github (we plan merge one of them into next release [1]). I’ll try improve this description in 4.1.

These minor suggestions are just that ... suggestions -- not part of the "condition".

= = = = =

Most minor of all -- my own personal user-question :) -- I still see "Unsupported Content type in Editor". I've always assumed that was my own "install mistake" or something. But if that is a known issue, let me know the bug or work around.

This message is from WTP (PHP Editor is based on WTP HTML). There are two open bugs [2] [3] reported in past but I personally not able to reproduce.  

Thanks. I am very glad you (and others) have kept the project going!

Thank You!

Dear PMC Members

I’m requesting PMC approval for PDT 4.0 major release that is scheduled to coincide with Eclipse Neon.0.
The release contains both bug fixes and new features [1] [2]:

We decided to mark it as major release because we make some cleanup around API’s.
